The birth of Holy Leon was announced with his parents by an angel and his mother had the badge privilege to put him at the world without suffering. He was archbishop of Rouen. He undergoes martyrdom towards 850 and, before dying, he obtained from God that all the expectant mothers who would call upon him would be preserved of all accidents during the time of their pregnancy.
One calls upon particularly Holy Leon in the Notre-Dame church of Bayonne where are his relics.
One also calls upon him against the stiff neck.
Receive, Ô Lord, the wishes that I address bottom of my heart to you; and that all those which put with me them hope in you and the merits of your servant and Pontife, Holy Leon of Rouen, are persuaded that you never give up those which hope in you. We request some from you by NR. – S.J. – C. Amen.
Happy Holy Leon you who so effectively protect the mothers during time from their pregnancy, unceasingly assist me and in all circumstances.
For the stiff neck, to each time make three signs of cross on the evil while saying: Holy Leon, help me.
I adore you, Ô my Saver, ressuscitant among deaths, going up to the sky, and sitted with the right-hand side of your Father. Made, I beg you, that I deserve to follow you where you are, and of you to be presented there. Amen.
